Greenstone partners with UNGC and Ardea International to host webinar on human rights in the supply chain

Logos_blog.pngGreenstone has partnered with specialist consulting firm Ardea International and UN Global Compact Network UK to host a webinar on human rights in the supply chain on Wednesday 31st January at 3.30pm GMT.

There is an ever-increasing focus on global supply chains, with organisations themselves needing to take increased responsibility for whom they work with, and for understanding how their suppliers operate. Human rights is an issue that is very much driving this discussion, with rights and conditions of workers a topic Governments across the world are trying to address.

There is now a mixture of voluntary frameworks, against which organisations can report, as well as binding legislation on human rights. This webinar will look at what organisations should be doing to address human rights in the supply chain, and how ensuring compliance can reduce potential risk. Details can be found below.
